Laguna Niguel's brand new already needs some fixing after an 87-year-old woman smashed into the back of the building Tuesday morning.
The collision occurred after the woman's Chrysler was in a two-car crash with a 20-year-old man in a Saturn at the intersection of Alicia and Town Center Drive around 10:11 a.m., according to Lt. Jim England of the O.C. Sheriff's Department.
"We don't know if she panicked or not, but somehow she ended up a slope and hit the wall behind s," he said. "She clipped the corner of the building, and caused some structural damage."
The woman was later taken to an area hospital for minor injuries. The other driver was unhurt, England said.
Public Works Director Dave Rogers said the damage "won't be cheap or easy to fix."
He estimated the cost of repairs would run $5,000 to $10,000.
"She did some damage to the stucco, and it will take some time to repair," he said. "There are steel plates and some plaster that was damaged."
